HoopsHype Patrick Beverley rumors

September 5, 2014 Updates

What did you see out of Derrick Rose when you were working out? Patrick Beverley: He's super strong. That's the first thing I seen with him. He's super strong, he put on some good weight. I think the day I seen him and I seen how big he was, I think the same night I went to go lift weights ‘cause I thought, you know, I saw how big he was. Just his strength, his explosiveness, the way he moves off pick-and-roll and how hard he works in the weight room. So it's a Chicago family, man. Me, him, Will Bynum, Tony Allen, we're all real close and working with each other has been a blessing this summer. CBSSports.com

Mark Berman: Pat Beverley: "I spoke to (Chandler) that day he signed the offer sheet with Dallas. He was hyped. I spoke to him at 5:30 this morning (in Taiwan) and he told me they are not going to match. Of course it's tough. I'm human. Chandler is like a brother to me. Me and Chandler were like the glue that kept it together. It's time 4me to step up 2the plate, provide more offensively and defensively to help our team. I'm confident. I think Dwight's confident. I think James is confident that we'll get some key pieces and try to make a run at this" Twitter @MarkBermanFox26

However, Bosh opted to stay in Miami on a five-year, $118 million max contract, sources confirmed to ESPN. The Rockets could only offer Bosh a four-year deal for a little more than $80 million in order to keep point guard Patrick Beverley and match the Mavs' offer to Parsons. ESPN.com

Not so coincidentally, Rockets point guard Patrick Beverley joined the loudest of recruiting pitches this week in an appearance with Jay Mohr on Fox Sports Radio. Mohr posed as James in the bit, with Beverley arguing all the reasons that coming to Houston was the right move for the league's best player. Beverley and James have a very good relationship, and one person with knowledge of the situation said his part in the recruiting would be taking place privately as well. The person spoke to USA TODAY Sports on the condition of anonymity because of the private nature of the situation. USA Today Sports

With Rockets guard Pat Beverley returning on Wednesday from the sprained right knee he suffered in Game 1, his agent Kevin Bradbury said the injury had no relation to his torn knee cartilage March 27 and that Beverley was in no greater danger of further injury by playing again on Wednesday. Beverley was helped off the court on Sunday after he ran into a screen set by Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge. Aldridge fouled out on the play and Beverley fouled out less than a minute later. “The other night, he hyper-extended that thing and banged it on the ground,” Bradbury said. “That will cause lots of pain, but there was no swelling. It calmed down. If a doctor tells me there is a chance he can do something more to himself, it’s a tough spot to be in, but you have to make the best decision for the kid’s future.” Houston Chronicle

Bradbury said that he had a surgery scheduled for Beverley on March 31 in the days following his cartilage tear, but Dr. James Andrews said after reviewing two sets of MRI results that he would not recommend surgery. Had surgery repaired the cartilage, Beverley would have been out for the season. Had a torn piece of cartilage been removed, Beverley would be just returning now. Instead, he missed eight games and played in the final three of the regular season. “The debris (from the initial injury) is gone,” Bradbury said. “It’s smooth. Dr. Andrews said ‘I would not recommend doing anything on this even if it was the off-season.’ He was cleared medically to play. You are not going to re-tear it. That piece of meniscus is gone. It’s not coming back and getting torn again. It’s gone. “ Usually, a meniscus tear has varying degrees of fraying on the edges. Bradbury, who also represents former Rockets forward Chase Budinger who had the surgery and a subsequent surgery for a meniscus tear, said Beverly’s tear was a clean, straight line.

According to NBA.com, the Rockets allow 101.5 points per 100 possessions with Beverley on the floor, and that shoots up to 103.4 per 100 possessions when he is off the court. He has a plus/minus of 7.9 when he is on the floor, the highest of any Rockets regular. That has Beverley within sight of one of the accomplishments he hoped to reach this year — making the NBA’s All-Defensive team. He does not put up particularly big steals numbers, which is too often how perimeter defenders are judged. But Beverley prefers to make his impact not by gambling for turnovers, rather by staying tight on his man at all times. “(All-Defense) was one of my goals going into this year,” Beverley said. “Hopefully, people see that the way I play defense is top-notch in the NBA and I can make the All-Defensive team. … I think very few people do what I do defensively to change a basketball game. That’s what I do, I put my team in a good situation to win basketball games with my defense. I think it’s rare that you see that kind of gift that people have in the NBA but I am able to have fun with it.” Sporting News
